Most serious? Most funny?
KK, the sewing through it wasn't the problem, it was the automatic ripping thumb out of machine workings once needle had gone through it .
Luckily it was a baby dress for Girl K and was in Christmassy red and green...you could only see the blood if you looked really closely
A passing old boy walking his dog said it looked good too.
I went to do a survey at a house and the gardener came running up to me holding his hand screaming that I took him to the hospital... he had amputated his finger on the lawnmower. The classic danger of the blade getting stuck and he tried to free it. He still had the finger I drove him to the hospital.
My main worry was whether he would drip blood on my seats and carpet...!
Then.......broke my right ankle in a drunken disorderley uni party. Friend on my back into a fish pond. In plaster of paris for 6 weeks. Foot comes out of plaster, then no lying, 3 days later break the same ankle, under the influence, in the SAME pond. This time I was thrown in and landed awkwardly.
Oh, kk, no head injuries. At least I wasn't told about any. Although must have. I am here NOW! On a Saturday night!
Kwilter - EEW
Easy - Jeez - you were lucky to escape so lightly
DV - OMG (why did I start this thread, I'm so crap with gore...)
Lawrence - you've so reminded me of a friend (Jola - step forward)
Lee - I would hate to lose teeth, got a big thing about it.
I've been knocked out twice in very similar circumstances. Once, when I was a kid we were chasing each other and I ran across a garden and the washing line caught under my chin, flipped me up and I must have lost consciousness on impact. A similar thing happened years later playing rugby. Some monster did a high tackle round my neck and I was out for about 30 mins...
Can I claim for an injury I thought I'd done? I was cutting some fabric pieces for a quilt with a self heal board and a rotary cutter, basically a razor-sharp circular blade. I only had one piece left to do and didn't move my hand out of the way, being lazy. Sadly my little finger was just over the edge of the ruler. Naturally I sliced straight into my finger.
Cue much blood (I mean lots and lots) screaming from me, and a conviction I'd just amputated my little finger. I ran to the bathroom turned the tap on and psyched myself to look. It was still attatched but I'd gone through the very tip and halfway through the nail. I've still got a strange bump there and no feeling in it.
There is someone on here who used to do cage fighting.. I can't remember who that is... he had some good stories to tell about injury and being strangled..!
Lee-sterine , LOL, can just picture it! Having a good laugh and then....tumble,tumble,tumble......LOL
KK, that was in my mental youthful days though.
Good thread this, kk.. well done!
Quilting is an extreme sport Kwilter, i bet you've had more injuries through it than running.
(my family is wondering why I'm laughing so much!!)
Burnt my foot one New Year's Day when a hot chip straight out of the oven went down the side of my (sockless) trainer.
Kwilter - stop it, I'm crying with laughter now.
